Since news of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 may see a mega auction before the tournament begins in the proposed window of April to May 2021.

A lot of speculations about few players being retained while some may have to leave are doing the rounds.

The decision for the same may be taken by the BCCI in December. There are also reports that a ninth team might be included in IPL 2021.

Here is a potential list of players from SRH, DC and KKR

Shreevats Goswami was the frontline wicket-keeper for the India U19 team that emerged victorious in the 2008 World Cup.

He was only brought in after Jonny Bairstow’s poor form and Wriddhiman Saha getting injured. His performance did not make much of an impact and his future with SRH looks bleak.

Bavanaka Sandeep may also follow suit with Goswami. He may be an unknown name for most IPL fans.

However, his IPL career is totally different. Especially with the inclusion of Priyam Garg and Abhishek Sharma, Sandeep’s future seems unpredictable with the SRH.

Prithvi Shaw is also one player who could see his way out of DC.

Kolkata Knight Riders are a side that is loaded with the strongest overseas players. However, still, they have failed to make an impression.

Indian spinner Kuldeep Yadav was once a vital cog of KKR’s bowling attack, but he has now fallen down and found himself warming the bench for the most part of IPL 2020. Kuldeep managed to play only 5 games and picked up only 1 wicket in what was a forgetful season for the Chinaman spinner.

Tim Seifert is another player who could be sent off. Seifert did not make the cut into the playing XI and with a maximum of only 8 players allowed in a squad, Seifert might be released by KKR.
